Phantom Kid in the World of American Comics - Chapter 97
2/5 Chapter. Enjoy!
The tree roots that gushed out from the ground grew thicker and longer.
It was even divided into two branches, with the thickest roots sweeping towards Batman, who could only dodge backwards.
The slender roots of the tree gently extended in front of Mathison, and then slammed his handcuffs, causing them to break.
Then the roots gently wrapped around Mathison’s waist and pulled him into the cave created by the roots as they surged out of the ground.
After a while, the ground stopped shaking, and the roots of the trees that were gushing no longer grew.
Batman walked to the side of the cave and peeked down to the bottom.
With a loud noise on the ground, Iron Man landed at this location, as the Batcycle drove over with Iron Man automatically.
“What just happened?”
Tony asked Batman as he watched the disastrous scene getting destroyed by the huge tree roots.
“Someone rescued Phantom Kid.”
Batman affirmed that if Kid himself had this ability, he would not have been driven to despair by himself just now.
“Does Kid have any accomplices?”
According to Tony’s understanding, Kid has always committed crimes independently.
Batman walked to the other side and picked up the broken special handcuffs with space stabilizing effect.
“Sure enough, ordinary materials can’t carry too much energy. These handcuffs are too easy to be destroyed by external forces…”
Although this pair of handcuffs were made by Batman, the design idea was not entirely completed by him.
But a long time ago, he met a friend whose personality was so bad that people could not wait to get him killed, and popularized him with certain aspects of knowledge, which allowed Batman to successfully create this pair of handcuffs.
The enemies he encountered in the past did not need him to use this knowledge until Phantom Kid appeared. Fortunately, Batman did not forget that knowledge.
“How did you know that Phantom Kid would use a dummy to attract my attention? Even Jarvis didn’t realize that it was a dummy.”
At this time, Tony asked what he had been holding in his mind.
“In Gotham, Kid will use the dummy to get out whenever he commits a crime, and the only place he has the opportunity to release the dummy is…”
“Because of this?”
“Because of this.”
Batman said blankly, and Tony didn’t know if what he said was true or false.
In fact, of course, Batman didn’t just rely on this to determine the plan of Phantom Kid.
The real reason should be that Mathison used Bullet Time.
In the first duel between Batman and Kid in Gotham, he understood the Bullet Time once.
Although he still doesn’t know how Kid managed to achieve that weird state, Batman’s body has naturally recorded that weird feeling.
The feeling as if time had suddenly stopped, and the moment Iron Man broke through the billboard, Batman had a similar feeling.
He doesn’t have a good method to counterattack it yet, but at least he can be sure that the Phantom Kid must have done something at that moment. The most likely thing is to use a dummy.
That’s why Batman planned to make a dummy so that the Batcycle would follow Iron Man.
And he used the building where Kid released the dummy to infer the best escape route, then guarded his position and waited for his prey…
In that deep cave, which was at least more than 100 meters underground, slender tree roots led Mathison to move inward quickly.
Mathison had already guessed who did all this.
Except for Poison Ivy, Pamela, no one in this world can freely manipulate plants.
Soon, Mathison felt himself rising from the ground.
“They will find this place soon. Let’s get out of here as soon as possible!”
As soon as he went up, Mathison heard a woman’s voice, it was obviously Pamela.
She was in a strange state at this time. Her original fair skin was now covered with a light green layer, and even her red hair had been affected in no small way, turning it into a dark red.
As she becomes more proficient in her abilities, her skin tone becomes darker and darker.
But when she doesn’t use her power, her skin tone remains normal.
When Mathison just came out to look at her, Pamela subconsciously covered her face and turned away, while also releasing the use of the ability. She did not want to let Kid see her face when she uses her ability.
After turning around, Pamela has changed back to normal.
This location is already outside the range of the Stark Expo, but not far away.
Although there is no surveillance around here, the emergence of tree roots before has caused a great disturbance. Could find them by following the cave, it would not take long for him to reach their location.
“Thank you for saving me.”
Mathison sincerely thanked Pamela. If it hadn’t been for her rescue, his identity would have been known by Batman.
Although Bruce may not be adverse to him, he will certainly take the opportunity to blackmail him to become Robin, which is worse than killing him.
“Hurry up, Kid. There is not much time left. We can pretend to be husband and wife… or lovers…. so that we won’t be suspicious.”
As Pamela suggested, her face flushed inexplicably.
Without further ado, Mathison didn’t care about the suitability and immediately put on a high-end suit that he had prepared a long time ago and a valuable watch.
Then Mathison took Pamela’s hand naturally.
“Why did you save me? Do you know that saving me will cause you a lot of trouble?”
The two left here quickly, Mathison asked intently on the way, but he regretted it immediately afterwards.
Pamela was startled, then her eyes quickly became firm.
“I’ve been in love with you ever since you rescued me from that sinful city!”
“You know I never let others see my true face, and there will never be an exception.”
Mathison stared into Pamela’s eyes earnestly.
“My footprint will definitely not only stop at the two cities of Gotham and New York. The whole of the United States… and the whole world is my stage. If you fall in love with me, you are destined to not get the happiness you deserve.”
“I don’t mind being with you, as you can see, I have the ability to help you…”
At this point, Pamela suddenly paused. She thought about the mutation in her body when she uses her ability. She didn’t know whether she would, one day, turn her skin tone into a green that could not be restored to normal.
At that time, she must look ugly…
“Forget it! I don’t want to tie up your feelings, you saved me once before, and I saved you once. We are even.”
Pamela pretended to be calm.
Mathison did not speak, but suddenly stopped, and then put his hand on Pamela’s shoulder.
“What do you want to do?”
Pamela blushed and asked, as her heart was pounding.
“There will be surveillance cameras not far ahead, and you also need a little disguise, otherwise they are likely to find you.”
Mathison said calmly.
“Huh? Oh, you are right.”
Pamela said disappointedly.
Mathison put his hands on Pamela’s shoulders, and then, with a strong push, Pamela turned around unconsciously.
Then, she became a noble young woman in an elegant evening dress, matching Mathison’s look.
“Don’t think too much now, wait until you leave here.”
Mathison said softly.
Pamela nodded, and the two of them moved away without saying a word…
